In Calgary, 1 in 8 infants are born premature and require the lifesaving support of the city’s Neonatal Intensive Care Units. Your generosity can help us reach our goal of raising $66m to get these newborns just what the need: the expansion of the Foothills NICU, funding for family-centered care initiatives and investment into preterm birth research.
When it comes to ensuring the best possible health outcomes for our community, doctors, nurses and first responders aren’t the only people who can change people’s lives. You have the power to transform health care and help make a significant difference for family, friends and neighbors.
When Yalda had her son, she knew something wasn’t right. Not only did she not feel that newborn bliss she’d read about – she was experiencing terrifying and violent intrusive thoughts that eventually brought her to the Foothills Medical Centre in Calgary.
80% of Albertans depend on our health system each year. You can be part of someone’s life-changing health care story – and it’s never been easier.
